boxwood basil

Browsing for annuals yesterday, this boxwood basil caught my eye. I thought there was an interesting little weed instead of an herb/veggie in one of the pots. But the label said boxwood basil, never seen one like this before. Hard to imagine it will get/grow fast enough to actually eat some. Who has had this plant? What are your thoughts about it? Same culture as regular basil? Flavor?

It will always be small, that's the beauty of it for some purposes. I grew if for a couple of years and loved the flavor. It might be hardy in your location.

RE: boxwood basil

Interesting, thanks! If it grows pretty slowly, I think it would be a daggone cute "tree" in a mini garden, but worry it would need a lot more water than the other succulent-type plants. Hmmm...

RE: boxwood basil

Is this the same as globe basil? If yes, they wont grow very tal but get bushy.

RE: boxwood basil

Oh I don't know, but maybe the common name I've used is less common. It does look like a little green globe. Thanks for the input! If it ever stops raining, I'll take a pic of it, a cute little thing.
